10 Martyred Disciples of Athenogenes the Bishop of Heracleopolis

Troparion — Tone 2

Most blessed and wise Bishop and Martyr Athenogenes, / You grew as a palm tree in the Monastic life; / Towering as a cedar in your struggles, / Through your teachings you brought a number of martyrs to Christ. / We honor them together with you.

Kontakion — Tone 2

You have appeared as bright lamps, O holy martyrs! / Illumine the whole creation with the brightness of your miracles! / Deliver it from infirmity and drive away the deep darkness, / Always interceding before Christ God for us all!
